Abstract or Summary
  • The western Plethodon include vandykei vandykei, v. idahoensis, larselli, dunni,vehiculum, stormi, elongatus, and an undescribed form referred to as the "unstriped" Plethodon. These salamanders have been placed into three species groups: the Vandykei group, the Vehiculum group, and the Elongatus group. Range maps are provided and geographic variation is discussed for each species. Emphasis is placed on costal groove and tooth number but other characters, such as head width and length, stripe width, and limb length are also considered. The pigmentation of each species was described in detail. A key is provided. P. vandykei idahoensis is thought to be the most primitive western Plethodon and a dendrogram is presented.
